out. the exit question, the shadow of bill clinton has been hanging over this presidential campaign since the democratic convention when clinton came to the rescue of obama. has governor romney now dispelled that shadow of clinton, yes or no? >> clinton made an argument that nobody could have done better than obama but mitt romney in that debate suggested, and i think he convinced a lot of people, i can do bert. >> what do you think, eleanor? did he dispel the -- >> romney won on style, but he still has problems with substance. the american people still don't know how his arithmetic is going to come out, and president clinton framed that argument in the best way possible. it's a question of arithmetic and that's still the has romne shadow of clinton? >> yes, i think he has. i think he showed himself to be presidential, really presidential, and he had something that we haven't seen in a long time. a mastery of both the substance and the facts of a case that he was making. he did it brilliantly in this debate. >> why don't you go to work for romney since you work for obama? >> i'll s

'm struck by the fact that the two most important performances of this campaign-- bill clinton's and mitt romney's in that debate-- were the two wonkiests. somehow i think in a moment of great cynicism people like to be talked to in a serious powerpoint sort of way in which a lot of us in the media think oh, it's over their heads, they'll be bored. >> pelley: but don't be folksy? >> i wouldn't go too far away from the statistics and data which is ryan's home turf. >> the difference is bill clinton used the word arithmetic i've never heard paul ryan use the word arithmetic. arithmetic is a word understood by people who only went to the sixth grade or people with ph.d.s. it's one thing to be wonky and not to do it in obscure language that's off putting. i do think as well that the question of the vice president is always, judy, he's mr. august when he's chosen. joe lieberman was a popular choice in 2000 but the real test is mr. october, what he does in this debate. paul ryan was a popular choice among many conservatives but this is his moment of truth. and there's going to be a lot of nervo

: last week, issa and utah congressman jason chaffetz wrote to secretary of state hillary clinton, alleging the department had denied requests for beefed-up security at benghazi. chaffetz expanded on the charge today. >> i believe, personally, with more assets, more resources, just meeting the minimum standards we could of and should of saved the life of ambassador stevens and the other people that were there. any reasonable person looking at the security situation in libya had to come to the conclusion that it was tumultuous at best. >> reporter: that claim relies in part on lieutenant colonel andrew wood of the utah national guard. he served as the site security team commander in libya from february to august of this year. wood testified today that security was never adequate. >> the security in benghazi was a struggle and remained a struggle throughout my time there. the situation remained uncertain and reports from some libyans indicated it was getting worse. diplomatic security remained weak. in april, there was only one u.s. diplomatic security agent stationed there. >> repo

in the platform of action. when secretary of state clinton gave her speech in beijing, she said, "women's rights are human rights. but if they are being beaten and abused, they're never going to actualize it." >> belva: the current campaign, where you are really trying to get to teenagers and the word respect is in it. how does that play out with these young people? >> part of what we're trying to do is get people to really have a conversation about healthy relationships, and healthy relationships are based on mutual respect. so, respect is fundamental to any relationship that has open communicati communication, empathy and is not filled with control and battery. >> belva: do you get teens to buy in? >> we absolutely do. we absolutely do. we had a wonderful teen summit in boston where we had hundreds of teenagers, facing it, not facebooking it and having a conversation about, if they're going to break up with somebody, they're going to do it in person and they're not going to just put it on the internet. so, we're working on it. and we are finding that most people want to do the right thing. mos
